Signature Programs

Young boys enjoy many benefits from an elementary school designed just for them.  A small school devoted to the crucial early years of learning and development gives full attention to its students in a nurturing community, a little world where they are loved and valued.  A number of our programs focus on the intellectual, emotional, and physical needs of young boys and provide a framework for boys to take risks and grow.

“If you take away only one impression from your visit to St. Bernard’s, I hope it is the vital role of enthusiasm.  Beyond the rudiments of learning, the habits of study, the self-discipline must lie the desire to work, learn, and grow.”
